One of the biggest issues that viewers have had with Game of Thrones since it’s arrival on our screens back in 2011 is that more often than not it takes a few episodes to get things moving. We’d hoped that by the time we’d reached season six, the delivery of the various story lines would have become much smoother but alas, it doesn’t seem like this is the case after all.
Despite so much happening in the recent episode (turn away now to avoid spoilers) viewers were not happy…
In spite of the return of the Brotherhood Without Banners, Jaime and Brienne’s reunion and Ayra Stark turning completely badass and killing The Waif (we never liked her anyway) and telling Jaqen H’ghar that she’s going back to Winterfell and basically telling him to shove his Many-Faced God where the sun don’t shine! Some people still aren’t happy.
After the episode, many fans took to twitter and facebook to complain after the episode didn’t live up to expectations.
Much to our excitement, star of the hit fantasy series, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau aka Jaime Lannister has hit back at critics in an interview with TVline.

“It’s funny. I think a lot of things happen in every episode. But, I mean, I get it,” he said. “People are spoiled — in a good way! — and you expect some crazy stuff. But it’s been like that every year.”
He argued that “you can’t hit the maximum volume each episode. Then you get numb to it. It has to build up. You have to tell a story, lay the seeds. Then hopefully — and I believe — the payoff is so much better and so much greater, instead of just getting everything at once.”
We have to admit that he’s got a point.
The newest episode of Game of Thrones is entitled, “The Battle of the Bastards” so something tells us that we’ll be in for a treat as we expected Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton to come face to face in an epic showdown. If people are complaining that last week’s episode was boring and disappointing they may be forced to eat their words very soon…
